Pops loves it at the plot she has to be on a lead but she has a bed she can dig, has a bucket to chase and chew, footballs and squeaky toys to play with. She also has a bowl of water and treats and biscuits. There are birds, helicopters, and people to bark at. She also gets lots of hugs from my friends and neighbours at the plot. Often she just chills out enjoying just being there. She helps me to remember that my plot is my haven a place where I can be still and quiet. Here I can meditate, open my Reiki basket and send healing to all those who have requested it, to family friends, our Earth and to world situations.
Pops has an enthusiasm for and joy in life and for the:
The present moment
When I take a break and put the kettle on and make a cup of tea I often hear in my heart space Thich Nhat Hanh mindfulness verse:
This cup of tea in my two hands
Mindfulness held perfectly
My mind and body dwell
I am grateful for my allotment it is my haven and retreat,
and for Pops my beautiful dog.
